Fanny Blake

's Daughter `Nobody does epic romance like Santa Montefiore. Everything she writes, she writes from the heart'
Jojo Moyes

`This is Santa Montefiore at her best - an enchanting read overflowing with deliciously poignant moments. If you love a heartfelt, epic trilogy this is for you. I loved it and can't wait for more
Dinah Jefferies, author of The Tea Planter

's Wife, on Songs of Love and War `I have a tendresse for sweeping and epic romantic sagas set around huge houses and aristocratic families and Santa Montefiore hits the spot for me like few other writers. This is the second book in her Deverill Chronicles, which follows the fortunes of Irish sisters, Kitty, Bridie and Celia, starts in 1925 and focuses on Celia's determination to restore Castle Deverill to its former glory. Lush, vivid storytelling'
Sarra Manning

* Red magazine, on Daughters of Castle Deverill * `An engrossing, romantic mystery' * Woman & Home on Gypsy Madonna *
